Came here twice, once with a group of 5 of us, staff were great, up for a laugh and willing to take pictures for us even though it was really busy. It was quite slow in getting the food out to us. But it was worth the wait when it did arrive. We all really enjoyed the food, I had... More

We tried it out after recommendation from a cruise....it was worth it. didnt think it would be that busy so we went there without a reservation....there was a long wait to get a table indoors so we ended up sitting outside. it was cold outside but they put a heater on and there are blankets to use while outside....brilliant. great...

We had a late lunch at Dixie Browns at about 3.30. The staff were great and the food was awesome. We asked our waitress if she would take a photo for us and she was very obliging. The desserts are worth making yourself feel ill over. Very tasty all round.

We had a big group, some big orders, the food came out fast, and the waiters were friendly, and keen for a laugh. You'll get a massive feed for a decent price!! All 5 of us walked away happy, talking about how good all the food was. If you're hungry get the ribs or the steak!!

We ate here yesterday with two young kids and had a lovely meal. Service and food were great - can't ask for more particularly when we are always on a deadline!

I only got to enjoy a flat white here but the fireplace made it hard to leave. The staff was very nice and the food looked very good.

Had a family Sunday breakfast, restaurant was busy, but we were seated quickly and didn't need to wait long for our food to come out.

I ate at Dixie Brown's about a year ago and marked it as a place I would go back to for brunch when next travelling through. I talked it up to my co-driver and likened it to a quasi America diner style restaurant like Drexel's in Wellington and Christchurch and a great place to eat. We had to go out... More

Just passing through and locals recommended Dixie Brown's. It was winter and the real flame fires made it cosy and welcoming. It was not bust but the staff were helpful and friendly. The food was hot and tasty and we would gladly have returned if we had been staying in the area.
